AFP

US President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin will hold their first face-to-face meeting in nearly a year on Monday in New York, officials from both countries say. The meeting comes amid tension over Russia’s military build-up in Syria and its annexation of Crimea last year. The two leaders will meet on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, a US official told the AFP news agency. They are last reported to have spoken by phone after the Iran nuclear deal. “Given the situations in Ukraine and Syria, despite our profound differences with Moscow, the president believes that…

Can Fiorina seize the moment?

Nail Stanage

Carly Fiorina stole the show at the Republican debate on Wednesday evening — but that doesn’t guarantee she will be catapulted toward the top of the polls, political insiders say. “[Sen.] Marco Rubio [R-Fla.] did really well at the first debate and it moved the dial a little, but didn’t put him in the top tier,” said Susan MacManus, a professor of government at the University of South Florida. “My guess is [Fiorina] will probably gain more than anybody else from the debate, but by how much?” In Fiorina’s orbit, however, the excitement is tangible. Keith Appell, a senior adviser…

Hillary Clinton campaign deploys not-so-secret weapon: Bill

The Guardian

Bill Clinton is has been largely in the background of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. ‘My role should primarily be as a backstage adviser until we get much, much closer to the election.’ Photograph: Justin Lane/EPA   Say what you like about President Bill Clinton – and many things have been said about him over the years, flattering and otherwise – but one thing is certain: he isn’t cheap.

Exclusive – U.S. to China: Take back your undocumented immigrants

Daniel Maher poses for a photo for Reuters in Berkeley, California September 10, 2015. REUTERS/NOAH BERGER In early June, in cities across America, U.S. immigration agents arrested more than two dozen Chinese nationals with unfulfilled deportation orders, telling them that after years of delay, China was finally taking steps to provide the paperwork needed to expel them from the U.S. But, not for the first time, China failed to provide the necessary documents, and three months later not one of those arrested has been deported, and many have been released from custody. They form part of a backlog of nearly 39,000 people Chinese nationals…

PHOTO NICHOLAS KAMM, AFP Agence France-Presse WASHINGTON L’ancien vice-président américain Dick Cheney, faucon de la politique étrangère américaine, a traité mardi de «folie» et de «capitulation» l’accord sur le programme nucléaire iranien que le Congrès américain s’apprête à examiner. L’accord va «armer et financer l’Iran, en lui procurant simultanément une voie vers un arsenal nucléaire», a déclaré M. Cheney, qui s’exprimait devant l’American Enterprise Institute, un groupe de réflexion conservateur de Washington. «Il n’est pas un acte de paix, ni comme le président (Obama) l’affirme la…

Just 33 percent of Republicans expressed…

India, Pakistan to join China, Russia in security group

India's Prime Minister Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Sharif smile before the start of their bilateral meeting in New Delhi

REUTERS/ADNAN ABIDI/FILES (Reuters)…India and Pakistan began accession to a regional security group led by China and Russia on Friday after two days of summits which President Vladimir Putin held up as evidence Moscow is not isolated in the world. The Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, meeting in the Russian city of Ufa a day after the BRICS emerging economies held a summit there, said the invitation to the two Asian nations showed a “multi-polar” world was now emerging. Those words will have pleased Putin, who says the United States has an outdated vision of a “uni-polar” world dominated by Washington and wants…

Colombia acts on massacres – punishing whistleblower and promoting officers

Reuters, The Guardian

Sergeant Carlos Mora started to suspect there was something fishy about his brigade’s combat kills when he was posted to an intelligence unit in the region of Norte de Santander in north-east Colombia in 2006. After a sudden spike in the number of “positive” results, he noticed that the corpses of supposed leftwing guerrillas killed in skirmishes with troops seemed oddly placed, and that weapons found next to the bodies often matched those previously confiscated from common criminals. Mora reported his suspicions to his superior officers, but was met with insults and harassment, and found himself sent on increasingly dangerous assignments. When…
